Picture or illustration, Napoleon-era uniform

I hate painting myself into a corner like this.

I've been describing a particular faction of angels as favoring a Napoleonic military look, using the Branagh version of Hamlet as a muse and occasionally the screenshots to describe characters.  Currently I'm doing a writeup on a character who is an angel with dark grey wings and a (contrasting) white military uniform.  The trouble is, I can't find any uniforms from that era that come in white!! 

The character is the very picture of dignity, so some of the older 18th century pictures that I have found don't work--uniforms unbuttoned or stained, or too frilly.

Terms I've searched in Google image:  uniform, officer, white, navy, napoleonic, 1807, 1812
